Riechedly Bazoer of Ajax confirms approach from Barcelona

Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer says Barcelona have expressed an interest in signing him.

Bazoer, 19, told Voetbal International that his agent informed him that Barcelona had been in contact.

"I'm not going to be mysterious about that," Bazoer said. "Two months ago they told my brother, who's my agent, about the interest."

The Netherlands international also said Ajax's sporting director is aware of Barcelona's approach.

"Marc Overmars also know about the interest. They're watching my games and keep an eye on me," he said.

"I've to go on and follow the line of this year. We shall see what kind of beautiful things will come."

A product of PSV's academy, Bazoer had previously been linked to a possible Manchester City move before joining Ajax in 2012.

He made his senior international debut in November in a friendly against Wales.
